Endlich dürfen wir wieder fett essen – und nehmen dabei sogar ab! Lange wurde uns erzählt, dass Fett dick macht, Herz-Kreislauf-Krankheiten hervorruft und unserer Gesundheit schadet. Doch die wissenschaftliche Studienlage zeigt inzwischen sehr deutlich, dass genau das Gegenteil der Fall ist: Eine Ernährung, die reich ist an hochwertigen Fettsäuren, wie sie zum Beispiel in Fisch, Eiern, Nüssen, Olivenöl oder Avocado enthalten sind, bringt enorme gesundheitliche Vorteile und hilft sogar beim Abnehmen. In seinem neuen Buch präsentiert der Arzt und neunfache New York Times-Bestsellerautor Mark Hyman ein innovatives Konzept, um abzunehmen und langfristig gesund zu bleiben. Iss Fett, werde schlank basiert auf aktuellen Forschungsergebnissen und erklärt, wie man sich ernähren muss, um optimale Gesundheit zu erlangen und überflüssige Pfunde loszuwerden. Auf Genuss muss man trotzdem nicht verzichten, denn wie wir wissen, schmeckt mit einer Portion Fett alles gleich viel besser. Mit vielen praktischen Tipps, Menüplänen, Rezepten und Einkaufslisten weist dieser umfassende Abnehmratgeber den Weg in ein schlankeres, gesünderes Leben mit mehr Lebensfreude, Energie und Wohlbefinden.
